Cheap and cheerful, or cheap and nasty? You decide

Five cocktails for $20? It sounds like a trick. It also sounds like it will kill you, and whilst we can’t guarantee that it won’t, we can promise that it’s true. At Bar Nothing, a retro tat filled Carlton North bar, a cool twenty (notes or bags of loose change accepted) gets you five vouchers to be redeemed at your leisure for say, a gin, vodka, lime and lemonade ‘Kansas City Ice Water” or a ‘Bananarama’. Sure, it's not classy, but sometimes friends, quantity outranks quality.
